Floating in the Kool-Aid

Jane Hamsher points to a piece of idiocy uttered by Senator Harry Reid (D-MGM Grand Casino) my (alas) Senator, Carl Levin (D-Misguided Mercenaries, Automotive, and Private Equity) regarding the Blob legistlation, a.k.a. the We Always Wear White Hats on our Dorsal Pseudopods Law:

"A handful of principled Republican Senators have forced the White House to back down from the worst elements of its extreme proposal for new interrogation rules,” said Jim Manley, a spokesman for Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic leader. . . .

And Senator Carl Levin of Michigan, the senior Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, praised Senators Warner, McCain and Graham as “standing up to the administration” and producing a bill that, “while it has a number of problems, is a substantial improvement over the language proposed by the administration.”

It seems it's deja vu all over Ground Hog Day again.
